Snake Skin and Cheetah Print

26 Jun

Hello there Gorgeous Gems,

After my Florida post I figured I would tone it down, also because the weather somewhat cooled off. I attempted this classic constantly trending combing animal prints and as if that was not enough I added the classic Burberry plaids. I am a big fan of plaids as mentioned in a previous post here. In theory fashion is about trending classics with a twist or with a slight update would you agree?


Loafers: Gucci in forest green which I consider essentjewel. These are what I call black heels because they play as black heels.

Cardigan: J.Crew I am obsessed with cardigans. I can never have enough of them in my closet.

Nail polish: essie no more film, I have a feeling I will be wearing this one a lot in the fall.


Snake skin dress: Ann Taylor. This dress takes me from ordinary to confident, don’t you love when a dress does that? If only I could wear it to an interview, kidding!


Earrings: twisted stones by essentjewels which you can find here currently an essenjewel for me, I am thinking they will remain an essentjewel not only currently.


The Burberry bag is very meaningful to me because it is one of the first things my hubby bought me, years ago and I didn’t select, he knows me too well. He knows I love the classics this was also very early on in our relationship (thank you honey).

Want-to-be Wayfarer: bungalow I need a genuine pair like yesterday, however these are not too shabby, bungalow does an awesome job about what they choose to carry in their store, as I walked in there I immediately felt a California vibe because of the music they were playing, and the ambiance. Lipstick by FlIRT wicked, how can you not buy a lipstick called wicked.


And pearl strand essentjewels eccentric you can find here, which lives up to its name, every time I combine a get-up that in my opinion is pretty eccentric, I add this simple pearl strand which is a lot of the time is all I need. For more of a youthful approach to the pearl strand wear it partially underneath the neckline of your top everyone knows it’s a pearl strand even when its partially showing.

Jewels, what are some classic combos or modern trends that you attempted and where surprised with the results?

With love,
Monica

Feeling Like Florida

19 Jun

Hello Jewels,

The weather in the MI (Michigan) has been hot and humid and feeling like I am in Florida. Us Michiganders love to vacation in Florida during the cold grey winters, that is if my husband and I are not in California visiting my family. So what did I do, I faked it like I was in Florida, I put on what I call my Florida attire because it is bright and colorful, only I did not feel like wearing a skirt/dress.


Hair my friends: valcro rulers they are great because I am not adding unnecessary heat to my hair which I do enough of with a blow dryer.


Cross Necklace: Faith (currently what is keeping me living) essentjewels which you can find here.


Coral blouse: Express and Coral Lipstick: Bobbi Brown


Want-to-be Ray Ban Wayfarer: bungalow


Belt: J.Crew, our Carol pearls strand bracelet you can find here: essentjewels, wire watch: Gucci


Floral kitten heel heels: Etienne Aigner (this is probably as floral as it gets for me, everything else I will keep as chic as possible). Nail Polish: O.P.I. (Did it on EM) which I am currently addicted to because I have had it on my toes for a month now and it plays pretty close to a neutral, it is also not a true yellow, it is more in between a yellow/lime which works with my skin tone, a true yellow most likely would have not worked.


White Jeans: Paige


Ring: Sea essentjewels, you can find here, everyone is doing it mixing the gold with the silver, I also added our accountability bracelet you can find here, I think mixing the silver and gold really works well when wearing bright colors, and nail polish: Revlon (Coastal Surf) , I had to put it on because I had Florida on my mind.

And there you have it my Florida attire.

Thank you for visiting me in Florida my friends,
Monica
